Men's graphic tee shirt arteecollage grey v-neck tattoo
“An Arteecollage Valentine’s Day”, by Kirsten Ferguson 

If you’ve somehow managed to forget that Valentine’s Day is just around the corner then where have you been? Already most shops have a huge banner in the window or fake roses at the till by now! I think this is the worst time of year, not for the singletons, but for the guys who have the pressure of taking a girl out. Not only have they got to choose what to do and where to go but also what to wear. Thankfully Arteecollage, and their cool graphic tee shirts, is on hand to help!

The Arteecollage Tattoo V-neck T-Shirt is a good place to start. Not only is it comfortable but theretro style t-shirt also features a unique, hand-drawn print from artist Paul Engeris – adding an interesting dynamic to the look. Although you want to be comfortable, you don’t want to look too casual. To prevent any risk of this, add a black blazer from H&M to the style. At a rather reasonable price of £29.99 as it’s really more of an investment piece and staple for your wardrobe essentials. Having one button done-up or leaving the blazer open keeps the look smart casual, without it being too formal.

The next step is these ace Monkee Classic Skinny Jeans from Topman that are more casual than suit trousers but the dark blue keeps them smarter than your every day wear. Although £60 is quite steep, similar to the blazer, the classic design of the jeans mean they will be an investment that can be worn again and again! 

Finally, these brogues from ASOS with leather soles complete the dapper look. The suede leather makes them a little more special than your average brogue and together with the rest of the outfit, will get your date off to a great start!

Happy wooing, chaps!

Something stirred Twitter’ville on Friday evening. Within the space of a mere few seconds, streams of RTs and hashtags filled the air with some musical delight courtesy of The Strokes. It’s been almost two years since we heard any of their new material but the guys are finally back with a new track and they’re sharing it with us all. 

Available to download now as a freebie, The Strokes have taken a new, more electronic direction in the form of ‘One Way Trigger‘. What a lovely Monday treat indeed! A synth driven song, ‘One Way Trigger’ is obvious with its influences and also has a sneaky hint of A-ha in the verse, don’t you agree? Well, have a lil listen and decide…

These fine chaps join the likes of Destiny’s Child, Justin Timberlake and David Bowie who are all making comebacks this year. Hallelujah!

You can download it here now or via the official Strokes website.

“Transitional Trends: From Office Wear To Casual Evening Chic”, by Jude Duncan 

Ever been in that tricky situation, you know, when work finishes at 6pm and dinner is at 7:30pm and you have no time to go home? Well hath no fear, this post shows a quick and easy way to transform that office look from working woman to casual chic and party ready.

The wonderful people at my favourite natural online store Arteecollage have a range of fabulous urban Racer Back Tank tops in white and blue, as well as a black Modal Tank to help form this look. These cool modal tops are not only wardrobe essentials for any age but also brilliant foundations to any outfit. Layer them up for winter days or wear them on their own in the summer sun (s’all about investing in items for the future, guys).

To start compiling a versatile but stylish outfit, I’ve chosen the super soft urban white Racer Back Tank vest, which is a bargain at £7.50 (reduced from £30). For work, team this Arteecollage white Racer Back Tank with classic black slim fit trousers, a structured blazer and your favourite pointed heels for that causal but adaptable office look that will leave you ready for anything the office has to throw at you.

When your day is over scrap the safe office look, let down your hair, slap on some bright red lipstick and get ready for dinner or evening cocktails! By teaming the urban white Racer Back Tank with your pointed heels and swapping your tailored trousers for black Disco Pants, your standout outfit is ready to go. But for the extra “wow” factor, add this brilliantly bold sequin blazer from ZARA to really show off your style.

Right then, was that not a lot easier than expected? Day-to-night transitions are not as scary as most people think!

We’ve been bursting to reveal this news all week and now it’s FINALLY Friday, we can happily divulge deets of a crispy new feature for the blog. Introducing to you the first episode of the Arteecollage Podcast. Each month pioneering musical geniuses will exclusively curate guest mixes brimming with sonic treasures – all for your listening leisure. Stepping up to the studio this month is a rather special guest to the Arteecollage team.

Music engineer, sound designer and notable producer for some of the finest purveyors of House and minimal techno, Michael L Penman is a musical force to be reckoned with. Over a short period the Scottish artisan began solidifying his skills through experimenting across a wide range of genres and platforms. This raw and rare ability then resulted in collaborations with prestigious artists such asPhotek, Gwen Stenfani, Switch and Asian Dub Foundation – to name but a few.

After working with such a high calibre of influential artists, Michael decided to turn his hand to producing. As a result he released a number of energetic tracks on Slovakian minimal label Leporelo. Whether it’s his funky minimal extracts, or the rolling late hour tech house, Michael embodies a sound that helps to intertwine with your body and mind, creating a pure listening experience. It wasn’t long before his distinctive, bouncy bass lines, slamming drums and glitched out percussion soon caught the attention of the Minus crew.

Now a fully-fledged producer at Minus 12, and with a repertoire of three album releases over just two years, including “Guide”, “Plastic/Greasy Love” and “Animals are Minimal”, Michael’s flair for music is undeniable.
And it wasn’t too long until Michael attracted other top DJ’s. The likes of Richie Hawtin and Dubfirestarted to play a selection of Michael’s tracks across 2011 and 2012. This lead onto Richie using Michael’s track “Wa” in his essential mix on Pete Tong’s Radio 1 show. Indeed, there are plenty of exciting things to come from this chap. And, naturally, with this level of innovation, we simply had to get Michael to craft our first ever mix (he’s also a fan of our tees which definitely did NOT sway us whatsoever).

So, sit back, grab a beverage or five and lose yourself in this glorious mix by the man himself.
Michael’s also given us this freebie for y’all to download. Enjoy!


womens sports top arteecollage
‘Resident Blogger: Fashion Fit With Arteecollage’, by Kirsten Ferguson 

I’ve been contemplating going to the gym since the start of January but as yet, have done nothing about it. This is due to a busy time with work and university but also because I have nothing to wear. I’m pretty sure if I could find some great sports tops and trousers which made me look and feel good, I would be much more likely to go on a regular basis! Aside from the necessities – a good sports bra and proper trainers – you can pretty much wear whatever makes you feel most comfortable.

In order to boost my chances of going, I’ve opted for buying a new gym wardrobe which includes this Arteecollage Racer Back Tank top in white. Because it’s made from Modal fabric, I know it’s going to be gentle on my skin while I’m not so gentle on the treadmill! As it is slim fit I opted to buy it in a bigger size for optimum movement and at £7.50 it’s not going to break the bank, which is rare since the quality is great.

H&M are doing some great sportswear at the moment so I purchased three-quarter length running tights for £19.99. They are made from breathable fabric and the tights also feature ventilation behind the knees which helps to keep my skin cool and dry. Now for the fun part – trainers. There is so much selection to suit not only different fitness needs, but also different styles! I’ve opted for Nike In season TR ladies trainers from Sports direct for £37.99 which I thought was a reasonable price for good quality, beneficial trainers.

Finally, underneath my Arteecollage racer tank top is a Supernova sports bra from Adidas. Again, like the trainers, it is vital for us ladies to invest in order to have the right support! The fabric removes any trace of sweat and the cross straps in the back, as well as the square neck, add extra support.

I can’t wait to try out my new gym outfit and am now raring to go because the sheer comfort of all these elements mean you don’t need to sacrifice your style when working up a sweat!

Women's arteecollage black and white t-shirt tank crew

‘Essential Spring Trends: Arteecollage Mono-Contrast’, by Sophie Mayanne 

Seen in mainline New York in the Marc Jacobs collection, monochrome is back, in all its glory.
key trend for this spring, be it the cropped monochromatic jacket seen by  Chanel in Paris, orgraphic simplicity in Jil Sander’s collection – the trend is an eye catching statement which can be difficult to master. The balance is easy to tip into disastrous territory – either too much white or too much black.

So how can you wear this trend?

Arteecollage offer a range of functional and essential wardrobe basics for women that can see you through the monochrome trend- and into seasons beyond. Designed with silky, modal fabric, their urban-inspired clothing offers a luxurious and comfortable feel – a perfect styling starting point for this trend.

Start with the simplest wardrobe basics in black and white- vest topst-shirtslong sleeved tops. All of these offer the versatility needed to carry off a trend well – it is easy to forget that the “must have” new top and trousers from a ridiculously priced designer line don’t necessarily work together. It may have fooled you on the catwalk, but it doesn’t mean it should appear on the street.
Now you have your basics sorted, you can bring more clothing into the mix:
  1. A cropped jacket – if you are going to invest in any jacket this season, the cropped jacket is the definite answer. Trending across all of the fashion weeks, it is set to be a wardrobe staple for spring. Go one step further and chose yours in a monochromatic print to achieve two trends in one! 
  2. The black skater skirt- an infallible wardrobe item that is winter and spring worthy- not to mention flattering. Style with heels for a sophisticated vibe or with converse for an urban edge
  3. Jeans – these are, of course, quite possibly the ultimate wardrobe staple, and chances are you probably already have a pair to match the trend. Keep things simple and combine your pair with one of Arteecollage’s modal racer back tank tops for an effortlessly chic look
  4. A chiffon blouse – shirts are a wardrobe piece that can be styled to look ultra- feminine, tomboyish or simplified for daily wear. Pair your blouse with the black skater skirt for the ultimate Friday night look, or with a pair of Arteecollage’s leggings for the ‘model off duty’ image
So for those of you with a trend-setting eye, start with Arteecollage’s versatile wardrobe basics to coax you to sartorial delight. With their versatile women’s collection, it acts as an investment for this season, and then will endure for future collections. With these clothing foundations you can build the perfect mono-contrast look that sends your style rating to a 10/10.

womens modal t-shirt top

“Casual dressing with Arteecollage Modal Tops“, by Kirsten Ferguson.
I started my final semester of university on Monday and am now faced with the dreaded dissertation. And with the imminent agonising over hours stuck in the library and fidgeting until I can piece together a sentence, I need to be comfortable. But whilst spending all-nighters reading books and bashing at my keyboard, I still need to be stylish – you never know who you’ll bump into!

Today I’ve chosen this Arteecollage Asymmetric Modal top in grey. I can always rely on Arteecollagefor chic, classic garments and the modal fabric is so comfortable and easy to wear. You can tell by looking at the fabric that it is high quality and looks much more luxurious than your typical basic wardrobe essentials. Despite all this detail, the grey modal top is in the Arteecollage sale for only £9! The quality makes the top practical to wear casually during the day at university, or for a more casual trip to the bar post dissertation writing!
Screen shot 2013-01-17 at 10.49.57
I paired this Arteecollage Asymmetric top with Topshop MOTO Indigo Leigh skinny jeans. These are the comfiest jeans I have tried in a long time and are perfect for a day of sitting whilst writing. I prefer jeans to leggings in this winter weather as they keep me far warmer. As the Arteecollage modal top is quite simple, I added a twined cord pink necklace from H&M for a touch of colour and sparkle.  On my feet I have pink ballet pumps from River Island for £16 which ties in with the pink necklace.

For a practical way to carry my books I used my grey tote bag from New Look which I thought was great value at just £15. To finish off my outfit, today I’m also wearing a russet brown cardigan from Phix and layered it under my duffel coat because it was minus four degrees this morning! Yowzer.

You can follow Arteecollage on Facebook and Twitter.

There is also only one week left to enter the Arteecollage draw to win £100 of clothing:https://www.facebook.com/Arteecollage/app_180899202052024

Enjoy the rest of your week.



Hook up with your lover, pals or sibling, grab a gallon of coke and barrel of popcorn and check out the movies on this frosty Wednesday. Hot girls, hot boys, lots of guns and sublime vintage styling – what more could you want from some visual escapism? Gangster Squad is based on the story of LAPD officers and detectives who form a unit to keep Los Angeles safe from California’s most powerful criminal Mickey Cohen, and his gang, during the 1940s and ’50s.

Mickey Cohen (Sean Penn), intends to expand his criminal enterprise to Chicago and New York. He runs the town, bathing in drugs, guns, prostitutes and all with the protection of the police and the politicians who are under his control. Hard core, right? It’s enough to get even the bravest of the brave shaking in their boots. But oh no, not if you’re a secret crew of LAPD outsiders led by Sgt. John O’Mara (Josh Brolin) and Jerry Wooters (Ryan Gosling), who unite to kick some Cohen butt. A lotta action and good looking people so definitely check it out this evening.

Also starring Nick Nolte and Emma Stone.

Now showing across the UK.

‘Boy Talk’, by Kirsten Ferguson

Since hitting the sales and not really racking for anything in particular, I’ve found myself browsing in the men’s clothing sections.  One of my favourite hoodies is one I bought last year from the men’s range at H&M and was actually cheaper than a similar one in the women’s section! Arteecollage have an amazing sale on everything (both womenswear and menswear) so I don’t need to worry about price when I’m having a nosey around.

Surprisingly the men’s t-shirts really appealed to me. The King Eagle V t-shirt particularly caught my eye with its cool, hand-drawn print. You can imagine how happy I was when I discovered this modal t-shirt is the ‘Deal of the day’ on the Arteecollage website for £8.50 (usually £30) until the 14th of January!

The printed tee shirt comes in a slim fit so I bought it in a large to achieve that baggy boyfriend look. Like many Arteecollage garments, it’s made with soft modal fabric, meaning you can be urban chic whilst being utterly comfortable!

For a casual look, I pair this deep v-neck tee with some black sawyer leather panel leggings from Missguided. The fitted appearance of the leggings contrasts well with the loose fit of the men’s graphic t-shirt, giving the look a feminine touch. I talked about creating a capsule wardrobe in my last post and I think leggings can be added to this as it can be worn with so many different garments.
arteecollage mens graphic t-shirt
To keep warm in our typical, rubbish British January weather, I layer-up with the H&M hoody I mentioned above. Not only is it really soft but adds a splash of colour to the outfit and at £14.99, it won’t break the bank!

This look is super comfy and easy to wear, which calls for some equally comfortable footwear. These Nike Hally Hoop trainers are simple but cool so they won’t clash with the panel leggings. I spotted these ones in Office but there is such a large collection from Nike that you could mix and match different colours and styles to suit your personality.

Finishing off the look, I’ve opted for this red Columbia Beanie Hat, £18, which is available online. The bold hue works wonders to complete this laid-back, off-duty look and definitely adds to the cosy factor!

So, next time you’re browsing the Arteecollage website, don’t forget to check out the men’s sectionand raid your boyfriend’s wardrobe for inspiration on how to complete this look with ease and panache.

Mixing things up this week, for her debut post, our new resident blogger Jude divulges about her Arteecollage experiences. See how she wears our array of wardrobe essentials and explore her SALE  finds as inspiration for your next look – all in time for la weekend too!  

“Sale Steals: Arteecollage Offerings, by Jude Duncan”

So if you haven’t heard of Arteecollage clothing then where the heck have you been? Since discovering this beaut of an online brand a few months back, I’ve been obsessing over their naturally soft wardrobe essentials, as well as their printed tees that look cool oversized.

Usually I’m prone to keeping hidden gems like these to myself to avoid turning up to an event in the same top or dress, however with their whopping 75% off sale, which launched yesterday, I had to share their urban chic offers with y’all.

Priced from a mere £3.99 for women’s urban basics, and £7.50 for boyfriend tees, check out their exclusive deals here:  http://www.arteecollage.com/, and on the Amazon Outlet.
Screen shot 2013-01-08 at 13.29.46
One of my favourite products has to be the Arteecollage Woman’s crew modal top. It’s a classic top with a short-sleeved design and available in blue, red and black. The lusciously soft t-shirt is an elegant must have piece for every woman’s wardrobe, and being made from natural elements is an added bonus too!

For me, I prefer dressing this woman’s Modal Top with these Office heels, American Apparel disco pants and a cool, black sheer chiffon shirt (above). But, for an alternative look, wear this basic top with one of this year’s big high street trends – printed leggings!

Whatever you splash your Christmas dollar on this January, I’d make it an Arteecollage Woman’s modal top. I promise you won’t be disappointed.

Last month we revealed the winner and finalists of our Talent House competition. If you’re not already in the loop about this *slightly* exciting comp, then for two months we ran a “design-a-tee” competition. Graphic-printed entries from across the globe were submitted and thousands of you lovely readers voted. 

The results were revealed before Christmas, and as part of the prize for the five finalists, we promised to not only give them exclusive discounts, but to dedicate a post to each of their original minds and the fruits of their creative labour.

This month’s featured winning graphic artist is Rengin Gürkut, who hails from Turkey and has successfully charmed the pants off Talent House by securing a following of over 1000 admirers. As a result, the artist acquired over 200 votes to become the competition’s People’s Choice winner.

See her repertoire of work: Talent House profile

Screen shot 2013-01-11 at 12.09.26

Specialising in bold graphics, Rengin says her way of crafting graphics is far from ordinary. Mostly with experience in the field of textile engineering, Rengin previously worked in the readymade (confection) sector which has helped shape her style. But upon visiting Bristol for an English course, Rengin fell for our diverse British culture and also used this idea for her print designs in our mens printed tee shirt design competition.
Of her foray into an artstic avenue, Rengin believes her instinctive ability to create is a result of having consistent painting lessons and experimenting with wooden and ceramic objects for many years. 

Following this, from attending just a few graphic design classes, her desire to create on digital platforms flourished. Now a fully-fledged worldwide treasure at Talent House, Rengin designs for the online creative competition on a frequent basis.
With everything from abstract USB prints to standout hoodies and quirky flasks, Rengin has a design for everything. 

If you’re as besotted with her talents as we are, contact Rengin here:

“New Beginnings, New Wardrobe”, by Kirsten Ferguson

It’s that time of year again when we reflect on the months passed and attempt to make resolutions that we are bound to break. To kick-start a new era, I’ve endeavoured to cleanse my wardrobe. Too often does a typical morning entail standing before my crammed wardrobe and being lost for something to wear. But, as a resolution, I’m taking my wardrobe back to basics with the help ofArteecollage clothing.

Firstly, I’m overhauling my wardrobe with this Women’s Black Modal Tank Vest. Flattering with its dark hue, which is just what I need after raiding the Quality Street tin over Christmas, this women’s plain black top can be easily adapted to any occasion. The black modal vest is on sale at £12 so it won’t break the bank and is a steal considering the luxe Modal fabric.

To achieve an urban chic look, I pair my black Arteecollage vest with Oasis Khaki Jeans, which makes this outfit ideal and easy to wear for a lunch date or for evening cocktails. Throw on a Topshop Zip charm collar and a pair of Miss Selfridge Black Point Court Heels and the effortless look is complete!

For the transition into night, a skirt is a must. This Ursula Heavy Sequin mini skirt from boohoo.com is perfect. The Aztec print catches the eye and complements the Arteecollage vest by setting it off effortlessly. For accessories, this short necklace from River Island draws attention without taking away from the detail of the skirt. The Miss Selfridge heels are used here again as the simplicity of the heels do not distract from the standout skirt.

A spiritual tribute to the much loved and much remixed Aaliyah, this transfixing new track from Katy B and Jessie Ware far exceeds the usual expectations of a producer’s ability to reinterpret Aaliyah’s archive of iconic R&B. Mixing things up a tad, here the Aaliyah which the pair croon over is not the actual legendary singer, but another girl on the dancefloor, one whose emanating an aura so magnetic that she’s transfixing everyone around her.

What the track does so blissfully is reference Aaliyah’s presence as the idea of something seemingly tangible but untouchable, so wonderfully enigmatic that it renders you totally captivated and eager to hook her gaze. Those R&B aficionados out there will see the parallells here and how it was indeed Aaliyah’s ”grounded mysticism”, that’s encapsulated in this track, which elevated her music, and not just the top-notch production and her rapturous vocals.

The track’s taken from Katy B’s new EP, Danger, which also features collaborations with Diplo, Jacques Greene, Iggy Azalea, Zinc and Wiley.

You can download the EP for free via Katy B Official
